Captain Kidd’s Fish and Chips

Captain Kidd’s is a fish market just North of the Redondo Beach Pier. You can choose your fish and have them cook it up any way you like – broiled, grilled, even fried. So you could ostensibly have salmon and chips or calamari and chips or even opa and chips. But I like their standard fish and chips, inch-thick meaty cod in a crisp coating that shatters under the fork. It’s standard tempura batter, but the oil is so hot the batter crisps up. The fries are the old school crinkly kind, which is comforting in a childhood memory kind of way. It comes with a second side, and you can order from a variety of them, from coleslaw to hush puppies. Captain Kidd’s has some good beer on tap, like Alaskan Amber and Fat Tire, served icy cold. Place your order, then slide into an old wooden booth and watch the sun set over the Pacific.
